Dillards pulls offensive holiday decor from girls section

As holiday decorations start to greet shoppers, one Florida Dillards department store faces a backlash for a distasteful holiday sign in the young girls' clothing section.

A mother of three snapped a photo of the sign and posted it to her Facebook page, where it sparked widespread criticism, reports the Daily Mail. The sign read, 'Dear Santa, this year please give me a big fat bank account and a slim body. Please don't mix those two up like you did last year. Thanks.'

Dillards said the sign was never meant to be in the children's section and has removed it.

The sign sends harmful messages to young girls and women, a clinical psychiatrist Dr. Rachel Needle told Daily Mail.

"'Parents, teachers need to begin to talk to kids about body image and body satisfaction. They need to be careful about how they talk to themselves because children pick up on the way we talk to ourselves about our own bodies and that as a society the three letter 'f word' needs to be removed from our vocabulary completely," Dr. Needle said.
